Chelsea board concerned by Frank Lampard’s worsening relationship with some players

Chelsea’s board are reportedly concerned about Frank Lampard’s relationship with some members of his squad as they ponder his future.

The Blues lost again today as Manchester City claimed a 3-1 victory at Stamford Bridge, with Lampard clearly under growing pressure.

Not long after the full time whistle, The Athletic reported that Lampard’s position as Chelsea manager is in some doubt, with replacements being looked at as the team’s form has taken a sharp turn for the worse.

It remains to be seen if the west London giants can turn things around, but The Athletic’s report generally paints a pretty bleak picture of the situation behind the scenes.

As well as poor results and performances on the pitch, the report states that Lampard seems to have a poor relationship with some players who aren’t in his core of regular starters.

This doesn’t sound like a recipe for Chelsea to improve any time soon, and it may be that a change is required to save their season.

Lampard always looked a risky appointment given his lack of experience, though his status as a club legend will have been expected to see him gain a bit more time.

Things are seemingly so bad now that that might no longer be the case.

    Sac that Man, Lamps is not enough to be a coach at Chelsea. He likes to put his country mates on the pitch rather than the money he spent to buy Werner, Ziyech, Harverts. He is not a good coach. Enough is enough. I say Enough for Lampard to stay at the bridge. Kick him ouuuuuuuuuut

    1. SN says:

      Yes this has been my observation as well lamps plays his country mates to promote them by giving them more game time so that they are picked to play for England as If they area best players.
      Sack him before we sink

    we saw it coming. we said it that by appointing lampard tge club was taking chelsea back to tge dark age. nothin showed traits of a great coach. at derby he achieved nothing. last season chelsea only lost hazard the bolig excuse was non signings but pple forgot we had sigbmned pulisic and kepa. today his big excuse is harvertz and werner failing to settle.
    what about his poor team selection and failure to study opponent and application of appropriate tactics. his team is very predictable. he continues to use same tactics when they are not working

      You have taking well

    As of now,lampard and the squad is not in form,but i suggest he be given more time.rome was not built in a day.

    1. Nachi aondoyila says:

      lampard deserve no additional time. yes rome was not built in a day but it took progressive (not regressive) efforts for rome to be established. the best lampard can offer is nothing but these worse results.

  4. Amaechi levi says:

    Yeah he is a championship coach with kindergarten players. Zero tactics bring back the Italian Don’t control.

  5. Alerbah says:

    Lampard is just clueless and so predictable with his wack team selection. I knew we are going to loose d game in the first 15mins into the game. We need a better coach to take this team up from where lampard sinks us from asap.

  8. Steve says:

    Why does he continue to play Werner when the man cannot even score. Drops Odoi who is in form and does not play an out and out striker against Man City. Not a clue. There definitely no desire to play from some of the team as we just seen. Don’t think this is the time to sack him but needs a shake up from the board.

  9. John says:

    What good is a front line with speed when they are NEVER given passes over the top from the middle. Does frank know that this is a big part of most teams game. Look at Vardi, Salah, sone, as a small example of top scorers game. It opens up the whole pitch.
    WAKE UP FRANK!!!!

  10. Mike says:

    Sack Lampard now or we risk bottom of the table contest

  11. alan howe says:

    I have been a Chelsea fan all my life but I am sickened by what’s happening, why frank plays Abraham is beyond me he is lazy and gives nothing to the team Giroud might be getting on but he gives you 100% and as for ziyech they keep telling us about his cultured left foot, well it seems he’s still waiting for it to be delivered and havertz and Werner might as well not be here for all the lack of effort they put in I don’t want frank sacked but he needs to improve his tactical thinking and grow some balls and drop the expensive imports until they show they care in training

  12. Mark Award sheen f says:

    I think lampard needs more time plz, no body succeeds without failure plz, give him time guys plz

  13. Elliot says:

    Any team has a bad spell at some time. Look at what was happening at Arsenal. Arteta was on the brink of being fired. But now he is getting the results. The same with Lampard, very soon results will start coming.
